    Also stuck an SV6 badge on the rear wall as it was looking a bit boring

    Haha, cheers man :) Voodoo utes are definately the best, i was looking at a white one for $18K and saw this for $12ish (They put the wrong sticker on the window and so "had" to give it to me for 12) and the colour was what made me go for it :)

    Forgot to add,

    About a month ago my gearbox started slipping. Between work and family i hadn't had a chance to go get it checked out. On my way to work i stopped at Hungry Jacks to take advantage of their $1 Frozen Drinks Menu Selection , and my car wouldn't move out of the drive thru, just kept revving out. I had it towed to my mechanic who checked it , informed me the pump had blown and i'd be up for around $3K. Being good mates with the mechanic and the car taking a week and a half to get fixed (Supplier sent a 6sp not a 5sp) I managed him down to $2500 which allowed me to , if i wished, purchase 500 of Mr Jacks $1 Frozen beverages.

    I picked the car up and it was a totally different car drives MUCH smoother, Sport Shift and Selective Shift actually push performance up now where it never did before by much.
    I pulled the old box apart and was greeted with this..... She was well and truly ####ed :(

    This is 5th Gear :/

    Good news is , she's back and better than ever :) My wallet on the other hand.....

    - New Foggie globes
    - new headlight covers
    -New Xforce 2.5 rear mufflers with quad 3inch tips
